nmafaToday we remember American documentary photographer Eliot Elisofon on his birthday (April 17, 1911 – April 7, 1973) for whom our Eliot Elisofon Photographic Archives was named. The archives Is a research and reference center with over 300,000 still photographic images documenting the arts, peoples and history of Africa over the past 120 years. Elisofon created an enduring visual record of African life from 1947 to 1973. On his death he bequeathed to the museum his collection, which included more than 50,000 black-and-white photographs and 30,000 color transparencies. The Archives has since added to its holdings important and varied collections from widely recognized photographers. #EliotElisofon #photography #photographic #archives #images #hollywood
